3:05 am
chatter we heard before 9/11 is being picked up by intelligence analysts. the president has been getting regular updates as the embassies were under heavy guard yesterday. sources tell fox news al qaeda is planning something big with a public relations plan to maximize the impact after the fact. they also say there's concern about a surgically implanted device possibly being used and they say this is not a dress rehearsal as some other white house warnings have been in the past. there is no specific word on the method of this planned attack or the exact target, but authorities on high alert this morning. back to you, guys. >>steve: thank you very much. the embassy closings were supposed to be one day but now it's the rest of the we can. initially it was thought any sort of attack would have occurred on sunday and now the feeling is because we put the word out there that there was something up, maybe they changed their plan. that's why it's going for another week just in case. >>gretchen: i think everyone agrees this is probably a pretty serious
3:06 am
warning. they're talking about bombs inside bodies that can go through any kind of security channels, the most serious threat since 9/11 in over a decade, being labeled as a major attack. people on the inside or on intelligence committees are saying they have not had this kind of intel recently but of course we're remembering back to benghazi as well, and that was on 9/11 of last year. so is this, you know, extra added protection because they don't want another benghazi situation? >>tucker: the scope of this has increased, the number of embassies and consolates has risen to about 28. if you look at a map it gives you a sense of the global reach of al qaeda going all the way done to madagascar all the way to asia, benning tkerb on the right. -- benning la tkerb on the right. that's most of the world. >>steve: some are wondering is most of this chatter going on right now because of these jailbreaks in the past few weeks.
3:07 am
500 a lot of al qaeda guys were sprung from abu ghraib. then there was a prison break on the outskirts of benghazi, there was another break in syria. now interpol is issuing a warning to be on the lookout. they want to know if the jail breaks are coordinated. keep in mind al zawahari has been beating the drum let's do our best for retail education of the drones. -- retaliation of the drones. >>gretchen: i think it emphasizes how difficult it is for the united states to have control of the situation where you can't control how easy it is to break out of prisons in other parts of the world. we release people from gitmo and give them back to these countries and they are supposed to put them in their prisons there but they don't really do that. it is an incredibly difficult task to monitor
3:08 am
all these potential terrorists whether they are in prison or not. >>tucker: some of these prison breaks have been reportedly very sophisticated, not just guys with a file in a cake. these are armed attacks with r.p.g.'s, et cetera. it does make you wonder the kill of osama bin laden, a profound moral victory, didn't end the effectiveness of al qaeda. this is being manned by al zawahari who is at large. maybe we didn't end al qaeda by going -- >>steve: maybe we busted into the centralized al qaeda h.q. now it's fragmented all over. some are wondering whether or not you look at what happened in benghazi, where they killed four brave americans, clearly some sort of al qaeda-linked terror attack, and who's been held accountable.
3:09 am
nobody. even though we knew, "the new york times" talked to some of the suspects and others have since then, we haven't done anything. now some are wondering is this a gross overreaction to some intel? susan rice, who is currently running the n.s.a., reportedly sees similarities trying to make sure this is not a repeat of what happened last year. here's lindsay graham and bill crystal. >> they are taking the right approach to this. benghazi was a complete failure. the threats were real there, reporting was real and we dropped the ball. we've learned from benghazi, thank god, and the administration is doing this right. a year ago the president said al qaeda is on the run, and now we seem to be on the run. i'm not criticizing the decision to close the embassies. that's probably the right thing to do for the sake of trying to save american lives, but it's a terrible thing. just a year ago boasting al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead.
3:10 am
>>gretchen: what's missing today in that discussion? an election. that was the campaign rhetoric back then. and how do you feel about that now in the sense that al qaeda in many respects could be bigger and much worse than it was ten years ago today. here's president obama during the campaign. >> i said we'd refocus on the people who actually attacked us on 9/11, and today al qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. >>steve: exactly. it was very catchy, a bumper sticker, but now fast forward, al qaeda on the run? we're on the run over there. >>tucker: you wonder if they're drawing the right lesson from benghazi. it seems to me the real lesson is don't lie and don't stage a cover up. don't staeupbl your policy based -- don't stage your policy based on the last war. >>steve: the thing about benghazi, it was in the midst of a campaign.

3:12 am
further play throughout the season into september. a-rod could reportedly get a shorter penalty if he agrees to give up the right to file a grievance. barring any sort of agreement, rodriguez's appeal would be heard by a federal arbitrator. yankees manager says rodriguez is penciled in for the game tonight and that would be his first big appearance of the season. 13 other players also facing disciplinary charges for taking performance enhancing drugs. they could be banned for 50 games. a lot of players are expected to agree to the penalties and then starting them -- start to serve them immediately. the announcement from major league baseball coming about noon today. >>steve: it sound like a-rod is going to fight it. thank you for the live report. >>gretchen: shutting down embassies instead of taking a stand, is that the new

3:17 am
middle eastern terrorist expert. what do you make of this? i know it would take more than an idle threat to close this many embassies. >> i do. what we know is al qaeda from yemen and other spots have threatened individuals will blow up inside the embassy. we're not talking about an all-out attack from the outside by thousands of people, hundreds of people. in this case the best position would have been to say we're not receiving visitors and we are taking measures and also ask the armies and the security forces of these countries to create a perimeter of protection. the reason i'm saying this short of knowing very specifically what time and who and what manner they're going to attack the embassy, if we don't have this information, we don't have it. that's why we shut down 22 of those. this would be the best course. the reason is this is sending a message to al
3:18 am
qaeda and the other jihaddists they are winning. even if they don't attack they will get videos and messages we were able to shut down 22 embassies. >>gretchen: how does this work? europe is also in on this and agreed to shut down their embassies as well? is america the lead on this or how does it work? >> i think the united states is the lead because we have been the main target in this case and others as well. y that is involved with the united states in any battle, should it be in afghanistan or africa are targets. al-zawahiri made that statement a long time ago. we make a determination and our allies decide if they will go in. >>gretchen: a state department statement. this is a commitment to exercise caution and protect our employees and visitors to our facilities. what do you make of the fact that it seems to be at the same time we're hearing about these prison breaks of al qaeda members getting

out of prisons all across this same region of the world? >> two things. one, there is a regional coordination. if you have those actions taking place in iraq and in libya and before that in egypt and other countries as well, the conclusion is that al qaeda is coordinating on a regional scale. second, we're talking about hundreds of those jihaddists who are now free to rejoin the battle field. if 19 of them have done what they have done on 9/11, imagine what 500, 600 could do. >>gretchen: that's a scary way to leave it but we're going to leave it there. dr. walid phares, thank you for your expertise. a baby deer shot and killed in a military-style raid because a man didn't have proper permits? a man who joins us next with details he says the government doesn't want you to know. ♪

3:39 am
student loans last year than exxonmobil made in the private market around the world selling gasoline. from student loans. put that in perspective, that is outrageous. >>steve: by the end of 2013, the federal government will make $51 billion off the backs of our students and their loans. if they took that $51 billion and zeroed it out, didn't make money on it, that would be $51 billion to help those kids go to college. >> or help them after khrepbl. maybe you want -- or help them after college. maybe you want to start a business. it is a farce, very expensive farce. that $184 billion at the bottom, that is from the loans made this year. that's off the interest of loans going to be made this year. we made $120 billion the last four years, at a minimum, this is amazing stuff. the private sector has been pushed out of this.

if you go back to 2005, student loans for kids, for people under 30 was around 15 grand. now the average is close to 22,000. that is out pacing inflation by -- >>tucker: and tuition, that is the point. once the government subsidizes colleges and universities, is there any incentive for them ever to lower tuition? >> when was the last time a college or one of these higher education facilities was criticized? when do they get the sort of scrutiny a private individual business, a plumber would get for trying to make money? when arethey the fat cats? >>tucker: those of us with kids hoping to get into college, we'll stay silent. >> you don't want to be blacklisted. >>gretchen: i want to congratulate charles. i have not had a chance to see him since he did his debut as a standup comic in that competition, the janice dean one for new

right wing that declared war on women's health. >> attacks on women, their access to health care, even contraception. >> their desperate fear about what is happening with this war on women that they started. there is a war on women. >>tucker: all of that hysteria was in response to a single comment from a radio show host but now some democrats appear to be waging an actual war on actual women. democrats like anthony weiner, eliott spitzer and the mayor of san diego. now that it's one of their own, our next guest says democratic party leaders are strangely silent. joining us our old friend and author of the upcoming book "emily gets her gun," emily miller joins us from washington. it does seem like when there are actual women being hurt by actual democrats, the democratic leadership says nothing. how do they get away with that? >> they're not getting away
3:47 am
with is it. every day in the white house briefings they are being asked what is the white house think? anthony weiner, and the white house doesn't have an opinion. or they ask debbie wasserman schultz, chairman of the democratic party and a woman, and she doesn't have an opinion. it took debbie wasserman schultz a full month to say bob philner, mayor of san diego, a gropeer and is literally sticking his hands down the shirts and pants of women who work for him to say he should resign. he's going to sex rehab which i don't believe will help, for two weeks for not giving up his mayoral job. supposedly that is going to cure him. >>gretchen: some of the campaign people i think within the anthony weiner campaign, even a woman staffer was saying
3:48 am
derogatoryry things about some of the women he was sexting which i think takes it to a new level. >> actually that woman, his spokeswoman unbelievably was talking about an intern. an intern wrote in "the new york daily news" it was a terrible experience working for this campaign. weiner started calling all the female interns monica. it goes to show you -- she wrote a story in "the new york daily news" about her experience. his spokesman called her the most horrible names and i know you guys will bleep me if i say it on television. he called her a slut bag. it is outrageous the way they treat women in these campaigns. yet you don't hear anything from the democratic leadership. thoeup here is the breakdown -- >>tucker: here is the breakdown. people who support
3:49 am
subsidized legal abortions are for women and people who oppose it hate women. that seems like the only issue that matters to the left running the democratic party. >> you know what? they're really on the wrong side of it. the one policy issue up for debate this year is whether we should allow abortions after 20 weeks, which is when the fetus feels the pain of the procedure. that will easily pass the house this year and is up in the senate. harry reid is tkpwog to do everything he can -- harry reid is going to do everything he can to avoid a vote on it. women know this is a baby and why should this be aborted? >>gretchen: very good to get your opinion on this. very straightforward coming from emily miller. we like it a lot. thanks so much, emily. have a great day. did you know everyone has a smart phone these days? what about toddlers? have you ever watched them. they know how to swipe that thing open better than adults.

>> steve: shocking new statistics about the number of two-year-olds with smart phones. a new study shows 25% of kids two and under own one. under two. are they too young for technology? here to debate it is hayden
3:54 am
lynch and syndicated columnist and author, betsy heart, joins us from chicago good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> steve: hayden, the statistic is jaw dropping. 25% of the kids two and under have a smart phone. you're okay with that. >> yeah. a smart phone is an incredibly powerful tool and to oversimplify it and say they're bad and vilify them is to say all computers are bad or all tv's are bad. it's in how you use it. >> steve: betsy, you don't think this is a very smart idea at some point regarding the smart phone. why? >> well, it's actually less about the technology itself for me than it is to say that i think we're seeing a lot of parents who just are terrified of their children being bored for a little while and being forced to make their own fun and occupy themselves and just sort of say hey, i canothe s what it's called. so many parents are terrified of kids who say, mom, i need your attention. and we parents don't want to say, honey, go entertain
3:55 am
yourself. that's the big problem i see here. it's not just the technology. my kids are older. they all have smart phones. i think we're great. but i think it's how we use them and parent with them. >> steve: that's good point. none of my kids got phones until they were junior high. what about the fact -- betsy kind of alludes to this -- a lot of parents out there who these days, unfortunately, they give a smart phone to a kid much as parents of years gone by would just plop their kids in front of the television to act as a baby-sitter. who knows what trouble they could get in on a smart phone now. >> that is very true. a lot of studies have shown you don't want the children to be passive receivers of information. so you don't just want to give them a smart phone with a video on it. give them something intertake that involves their hands and interactive. studies have proven that children who use smart phones ps
3:56 am
with app with two-way flow of information can benefit from that. to the second point, you are really have to be safe as a parent. make sure you have the cellular service turned off on the smart phone. a gps tracker can be a beneficial thing. some parents might want that. but you have to be smart. >> steve: and betsy, i'll give you the final word. what age should a child get a smart phone? >> when they can wisely handle it and when you have demonstration that they can talk and walk at the same time, which a lot of two-year-olds can't. give them a puzzle, let them go entertain themselves. let them learn those skills first and add the cell phone later. >> steve: all right. great debate. we thank you both for joining us. >> thanks for having us. >> steve: what do you think about that? at what age should a kid get a smart phone? e-mail us. donald trump on our lead story. instead of shutting down embassy, should we be send not guilty reinforcements instead? what's going on? if you haven't heard of them, you will. simon cowell put they will

material derailed, forcing the evacuation of nearly 100 homes. a rail car leaking sodium hydroxide which can cause injuries and death. governor bobby jindal raced to the scene. >> right now the evacuation remains in place. we'll do escorted entries where they'll help people go back if they left behind animals or prescriptions. >> gretchen: so far the leak is small. air pollution detectors are not picking up traces of the chemical in the air there. while you were sleeping, an arrest made in that hit and run at the venice beach boardwalk that killed a new bride on her honeymoon. surveillance video shows the suspect getting into his car and taking off. another camera captures the car speeding through the crowd. the suspect turned himself in two hours later. he's charged with suspicion of murder. he's being held on $1 million bail. his motive is unclear, but witnesses say it looked like he was driving to kill. >> i looked down and i just see this car driving through like

there's a girl latched on to the hood of the car and he's swerving and he knocked the girl off of the car and then he's just like running into crowds of hundreds of people and going out of his way to hit people. >> gretchen: horrible. the person killed in the incident, honeymooner from italy. here she is, 32-year-old alice. she was just married last month. her husband suffered minor injuries. in a few hours, army private bradley manning returns to court. the government expected to present even more evidence that the classified documents he leaked damaged our relationship with other countries. he faces up to 136 years in prison for leaking thousands of classified diplomatic cables and reports about the wars in iraq and afghanistan. it was electric and electic. cleveland browns fans got a taste of the upcoming season during family night. perhaps the biggest surprise was during the final play when the smallest recruit made his way on to the field. see if you can see him here.

4:06 am
maximize the public relations impact after any attack. members of congress have also been briefed. >> there has been an awful lot of chatter out there, chatter means conversation among terrorists about the planning that's going on. very reminiscents of what we saw pre-9-11. >> the state department has announced that 19 of the embassies and consulates shut down yesterday will remain closed through saturday out of an abundance of caution. the state department press release saying in part this is not an indication of a new threat stream. merely an indication of our commitment to exercise caution and take appropriate steps to protect our employees. sources tell fox news there is concern about a surgically implanted device, possibly being used in this attack and they say this is not a dress rehearsal as other white house warnings have been in the past. so far the president's actions have the support of his critics. >> it's clear that al-qaeda may
4:07 am
be more of a threat to us than they were before 9-11 now and we don't know exactly what all the intelligence is, but as you heard from a lot of the experts on both sides of the aisle in congress, there is a very real threat there. so i'm not questioning what he's doing. >> there is no word on the exact method of the planned attack or where it might take place. back to you, steve, gretchen and tucker. >> steve: all right. thank you very much. he alluded to the fear is that there could be a surgically implanted device and that is because al-qaeda the chief bomb make service still at large. donald trump is joining us live as he does every monday morning. we understand that the tsa is changing their techniques given the fact that somebody, one of these knit wit, might try to blow themselves up with a surgically implanted body bomb. >> well, we're living in very difficult times. there is no question about it. there is probably never been
4:08 am
any -- people are getting more and more sophisticated, thousands of people are out of jail that a few weeks ago were in jail. some of the worst criminals, some of the worst terrorists on the block have just escaped from prison. iraq lost 500 real bad terrorists. so i don't know what -- you look at what's going on of the we spend $1.5 trillion in iraq and they have a jail break. they let out worst of all. it's pretty sad commentary. there is no question about it. >> gretchen: what daubach of these embassy closings over the last couple of days? if you look at the map of it, as tucker pointed out earlier, this is like a huge chunk of the world that al-qaeda is infiltrating in. if they're this much of a danger, are they really on the run, as the president said so last year? >> well, they might have been on the run, but every week that you read when you hear about the jail breaks, which is really very disturbing to me and i know to you, i've been watching your show this morning, the jail break is just unbelievable.
4:09 am
you've had three or four jail breaks. they're being let out of prison. these are the bad ones. the really bad ones. it's a very serious situation. as far as closing the embassies, probably you have to do it. probably it's better to err on the side of caution. you could send military, but i look at your screen and i see so many places and there are those asking why do we even have embassies in certain of these places? we have no relationships with the people. we have no nothing. what do we have embassies? it's great way to give an ambassador a job, although i'm not so sure how many people want that particular ambassadorship. >> steve: not this week. >> tucker: do you think closing these embassies incite al-qaeda to further aggression? >> tucker, i don't know. i can't really say that. it's not a huge thing. i think it's an alert. it's a very important alert, but i think that probably we have no choice. we have to close them. you could send in military to
4:10 am
lots of different places and that would probably be okay, but that incites other problems. so closing them is probably fine. but look, it gets right down to the united states. we're not respected like we once were. >> steve: absolutely. speaking of international relation, how about this? the president of the united states is going to cancel his meeting at the g-20 summit with president putin over the head of russia, over the snowden thing because they gave him asylum for one year. now we're going to crack down by not having our president meet their leader. >> look, you have the united states run right now by leadership, let's say leadership that again is not respected. this is something that should have never happened. this is something that in the good old days we'd be getting back very quickly. snowden is a very bad guy. there is no question about it. he's caused tremendous problems for our country in terms of relationships with other countries, in terms of the
4:11 am
things that he's letting out. he is a very bad guy. he's a traitor. a traitor should be dealt with very, very sharply. now, if we don't do anything with snowden, you're going to have thousands of other people coming out, there is not going to be anything such as classified information anymore like the good old days. so snowden is a very bad person as far as this country is concerned. snowden is a traitor. russia should have given him back, if they respected our president, in they respected this country, he would have given him back very quickly. so what do we do? we say let's not meet anymore. not good. >> gretchen: let's move on to something else. char lea rangel from new york went on a racist rant last week when he was comparing the tea party to the term cracker, white cracker. here was the quote to the daily beast. it is the same group we faced in the south with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. they didn't care about how they
4:12 am
looked. it was fierce indifference to human life for america to say enough is enough. some people are saying why there isn't more outrage when he makes a comment like this. but if it is in reverse, there is outrage. your thoughts? >> i've grown up with him. i've been in new york for a long time. he's always been such a gentleman, such a nice guy as far as i was concerned and i'm surprised to see a statement like that. that's a rough statement. and not a good statement. and i wonder whether or not charlie is sorry he said it. maybe he's not sorry because there is a group of people that probably say that's wonderfuls. isn't that great? but i say this, if charlie or if whoever it was was a republican and they made that statement, they'd be resigning from office right now. >> steve: yeah. donald, you look at the stunning double standard. he is on the left and then couple of months ago you had the instance with paula deen where she said one word 30 years ago and she was crucified, lost her business deals. they took her to task. but charlie rangel gets a pass.
4:13 am
>> yeah. and nothing will happen toi see. if you're a republican, you make a statement like that, it's over. i mean, you are finished. if you're a conservative -- by the way, the further right you are, the worst it gets. so it's a very rough double standard. it's a very rough double standard. paula deen was absolutely crucified what they did with her. i don't know what even happened to her. i see everybody dropped her. she has really got some problems. amazing. >> tucker: they absolutely crushed her. charlie rangel, you could say, maybe he doesn't know what he's saying. but the people who demand the paula deens of the world be crushed and driven out of the public conversation, shouldn't they be forced to take a stand on this? where is obama in this? >> well, they're not going to take a stand and obama is going to take a pass and they're all going to take a pass and that's the way the country is right now. we have a very divided country and that's the way it is and get
4:14 am
used to it because it's not changing very fast. >> steve: get used to it. >> gretchen: we got to wrap it up. have a fantastic week. thanks so much. >> thanks. >> gretchen: more on shutting down ems basies coming up next hl back to the first, they're gonna do a lot of note-taking d note-passing. so make sure they've got a whole lot of paper. this week only, get filler paper for a penny. staples has it. staples. that was easy. with new all natural lean cuisine honestly good. it's frozen like you've never seen. they've stripped down to only natural ingredients. why? what were you thinking? new lean cuisine honestly good. in the natural frozen meals section.

4:18 am
the embassies is really a panicky move. they're afraid of what's out there. they don't know what's out there. in part they don't know because obama and his lieutenants have shut off renditions, extradition, interrogations, and now kerry promises to stop the drones. they've deliberately and knowingly shut down the channels of information that help keep us safe before they came into power. >> steve: sure. and we've heard from this administration and their surrogate, oh, we decimated al-qaeda. maybe the leadership, but we fractionalized it and now it's spread all over the place. >> yes. and i think we have to give due credit to the c.i.a. and to the special forces for the enormously important job and successful job they did in south asia in pakistan and afghanistan. but as that was happening, bin laden disbursed his forces. now we face them in north africa. they're resurgence in iraq, me own parts of yemen. they are a growing concern across the world and it's
4:19 am
because we don't take them seriously and we still, after 13 years, don't have a clue about what motivates them. >> steve: yeah. we've got a graphic that shows the embassies that have been closed down in the past. june '99, question closed six. april 01, three temporarily closed. 2002, nine closed. it goes on and on. i understand you told one of our producers stupidity and wishful thinking of obama, rice, clinton and brennan encouraged islamists. how so? >> it's encouraged them because they have spoken of a movement that's growing and is faithful to its religion as a bunch of -- limbed bunch of kneelists and gangsters. the enemy knows what it is and it knows what it's about. no matter how much mr. obama says these people have nothing to do with islam, the truth is this is a very important movement within islam and it's a defensive movement. and they encourage -- just by
4:20 am
fact that obama seems to be ignorant of his enemy, that encourages the enemy because they have the leg up on him. >> steve: but the government is doing the right thing in closing some embassies, right? >> it's the only thing they can do. because we have utterly failed militarily against these people, except very significant technical successes against bin laden and their leadership. but in terms of strategy, if you look at the map today compared to 2001, the geographic dispersal and reach of the enemy and because of the arab spring, its reinforcements to veteran fighters, this is a very, very big problem and the president is leading us to hell by down playing the seriousness of it. >> steve: michael, always a pleasure. thank you very much for your perspective. >> thank you. >> steve: 20 minutes after the top of the hour. changing gears, a 12-year-old jeopardy contestant crying foul. he says alex trebek just cleated

5:04 am
believe that this intelligence is as specific and as great as far as the amount of it, chatter, since 9-11. and add all of this together and you have a picture where technically, according to the intelligence officials, it was supposed to go down yesterday. because it didn't, it was extended through the week and the question is, if it doesn't happen then, what happens then? >> gretchen: yeah. it's scary stuff. they're talking a lot of potential attacks. maybe bombs that have been put inside the bodies of particular people, which would be a whole new kind of a tactic. at the same time, you have interpol issuing a link between prison breakouts. we're talking about a lot. >> hundreds. hundreds. it's truly amazing the prison breakouts. we've been covering them individually. but when you put them all together, it's pretty significant, this al-qaeda-launched effort to break al-qaeda prisoners out
5:05 am
from afghanistan, iraq, libya, pakistan, and syria. this is only within the past two weeks. soon after that, this increased chatter started to happen that was picked up. specifically about celebrating and having a pr push after this big spectacular attack that was planned. you have a significant tie between the breakout of those al-qaeda people in those prisons and all of this right now. >> steve: sure. >> tucker: we saw reports this morning -- i don't know if they're true -- but national security advisor susan rice was one of the driving forces behind this decision to shutter these embassies and consulates, almost 30 now. this, according to reports, was a reaction against what happened in benghazi, a kinds of doover. do you think those reports are accurate? >> we've had three reporters who have talked to different people who have all said the same thing. so either that's exactly what's happening or this is what the administration wants to put out,
5:06 am
that's happening. and according to t reporting that we have, she is very concerned that this is benghazi all over again and does not want to -- was one of the driving force of closing all of these embassies behind the scenes. you have also, i should point out, these videos of display herery coming out and we're a few weeks away from september 11 anniversary. this is an active time for al-qaeda. one of the things that's not great in the administration's big picture is all of the talk about al-qaeda on the run or al-qaeda devastated. this does not -- >> gretchen: the one thing that's missing from that discussion is an election. that was pretty much a campaign slogan for president obama after osama bin laden was killed and many, many, many people listened to that slogan and thought wow, that's fantastic, al-qaeda is gone. now we have a situation like
5:07 am
we've never seen before. >> yeah. al-qaeda is different. you talk to any expert and he'll tell you that it's different. it's spread out. but it is lethal. it's very deadly and it might be even more so today. al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula is very active terror branch. they're believed to be the ones behind this particular threat. if you're traveling, it's going to be a little bit slower. tsa is going to be a little bit longer. those line, especially internationally for this week, are going to be very long. >> steve: here is a flashback. a months before the election, here is the president saying al-qaeda, over. >> i said we'd refocus on the people who actually attacked us on 9-11 and today al-qaeda is on the run and osama bin laden is dead. [ cheering ] >> steve: some of the critics of the president say, look, a statement like that, if you're al-qaeda over in the arabian peninsula and you saw that, you're going, wait a minute.
5:08 am
we're not on the run. we're emboldened. we're going to try something and maybe that's what's going on right now. >> yeah. definitely you talk to intelligence folks and they're very aware of what's happening in the u.s. politically, overseas, all of these terrorist groups mostly are paying attention to what's being said, what's being done. the issue about al-qaeda being dead really was never dead. while they were having success about drone attacks on the central leadership, there is always these branches that have been very, very active. >> gretchen: but al zahiri has never been found. >> that's true. and he's still putting out messages. in fact, he's far more active than osama bin laden ever was in trying to micromanage al-qaeda overall. >> steve: that's one guy still on the list, we got to get him. bret, thank you very much. we'll watch your program ten hours from right now right here on the fox news channel.
5:09 am
>> thanks. >> gretchen: your headlines. a u.s. military helicopter crashes at the american military bass in okinawa. smoke and flames can be seen. originally there was concern a crew member was missing. but fox news learned the crew member was taken to the hospital. the three other people on board all survived after ejecting. no word on anyone's condition. the hh 60 rescue chopper was on some sort of training mission. an arrest made in the hit and run that killed a new bride on her honeymoon. you can see the suspect getting into his car and taking off. another camera captures the car speeding through the crowds and people jumping to get out of the way. the suspect turned himself in two hours later. he's charged with suspicion of murder, being held on $1 million bail. his motive is unclear, but witnesses say he was driving to kill. >> i looked down and i see this car driving through like there is a girl latched on to the hood of the car and he is swerving
5:10 am

thank you for joining us this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> tucker: this came to your attention when you say you felt the need for these services. tell us what happened. >> well, i was in an english class one morning and i am an active duty veteran, was in the 4th infantry division in the army, 2003 through 2004. i was 19. i saw a young boy killed by an insurgent and that kind of thing really -- it sticks with you. came up in class. we were talking about insurgencies and civilian casualtyies and i started having panic attacks and symptoms of posttraumatic stress and working at the city college with the veterans, i knew that we had a v.a. satellite there. i went directly to them and they had a clinician to who i could just walk right in, sat down,
5:17 am
started talking with him and basically alleviated my stress. this is something that kind of is unheard of in other schools. >> tucker: apparently city college of san francisco is one of a very few schools with those kind of services available. were you surprised to learn that? why do you think that is, given the number of returning veterans who are enrolling in colleges? >> sure. i was. i was actually shocked. being a reporter who broke that in his article and seeing that there were so few of them, yet -- i mean, this is a huge opportunity for the v.a. to kind of get involved with other universities and things like that. the reason why? probably, in my opinion, you got two large bureaucracies between university system and the v.a. system, and there is not necessarily a spark to ignite
5:18 am
that. sometimes you just need that person, like we've got dr. keith armstrong who works for the v.a. in many health and outreach, but also the director of psychology at the university of san francisco, so he kind of knows both of those beasts. he came together and made those two bureaucracies work. then with the help of the support of the city college of san francisco's football coach and other private donators, they were able to build us a huge lounge. they were able to build this satellite office and i don't think other schools necessarily know how to do that yet. there is not that one person or that group to go hey, your school could really use this. of course, it takes two to tango. the school might come out and say, hey, v.a, you guys should join us because it would look good fort schools. all of these veterans getting out in the next couple years could say, hey, what does your
5:19 am
school have to offer us? so priority registration and maybe early book loans, they could say, well, we've got a v.a. satellite here in case you have any issues or your family does. you can come in, you don't have to drive 45 minutes to an hour away to the nearest v.a. you don't have to call and get on hold with a machine. they're directly there. it's not like the kids are getting master degrees to help us out. these are professional clinicians there with ph.d.'s and a lot of experience, lot of good people. >> tucker: the first step is bringing to the public's attention and you are doing that and i know your fellow veterans are grateful. >> with your help and i appreciate it. >> tucker: thank you. coming up, the earth is opening up and no one can stop it. the sinkhole is getting bigger and bigger by the moment. could it happen in your neighborhood? then, did you see this time magazine cover? its message, having it all means not having kids.

5:25 am
a selfish society. if you choose not to have children, there is a good reason for it. this ain't your mother's motherhood. now adays kids have access with one click to porn in their pockets on their cell phones. it's a much more difficult time to raise kids and if that's not in your blood, then fine. you don't need to do it. >> gretchen: elizabeth? >> i think i agree. not everyone needs to or should have children. however, the cover of time article is definitely sending a message that rather than serve your fellow man and do good, lounge around on the beach, enjoy your life. there isn't anything more meaningful than taking care of yourself apparently and just have a good time. there is no need -- it's interesting 'cause it used to be that our society valued self-sacrifice and now it seems that that has shi all about self-gratification and
5:26 am
self-indulgent vacation. >> gretchen: what about, though, if people are making that choice because they know they won't be good parents? jen? >> i think that's great choice to make if it's not something that's in their blood. it's hard enough to be a parent when you want to do it, when you're having 600 consecutive sleepless nights 'cause you have colicky babies or because the kids are running outside with duct tape and a rope and you wonder where they're going. >> gretchen: we've all been there. i have some friends who have chosen not to have kids. it's their personal choice. i think that maybe we're just in an era now where women have more opportunities. that could also be part of it. but one thing that struck me in this, elizabeth, was -- this will be controversial to say this -- but the people who are choosing most like not to have children are highly educated women. your thoughts? >> yeah. i think that's definitely interesting. i think it's actually kind of sad 'cause those are the kind of people that we want to be having children to raise good citizens, to raise children who are going
5:27 am
to give back to society and make a wonderful impact on our world. the message there is that no, you don't really need to do that. i think it's interesting that we -- it's fine not to have children 'cause it's hard work, 'cause there is going to be sleepless nights, i mean, that's not the message. >> gretchen: one other glaring thing that's missing from this discussion, men. it's almost stereotypic to be talking to women about this topic because men do is a part in creating children. and one of the biggest problems in society right now is fatherlessness. right, jen? >> yeah. i think if you read the article, you'll see the reasons they focused on women is because the presumption is that we have clicking biological clocks, whereas men can give birth -- or have children long into life. i think that's part of it.
5:28 am
there are fathers as there are mothers and we need both. but if it's not for you, don't do it. >> gretchen: obviously so much to discuss here. it's very controversial topic, but one we hope we handled in a fair and balanced way. good to see you both. coming up on our show, shocking video. the moment a bus driver -- watch this. sucked right out of that car window and survived luckily and a few weeks ago, this little puppy couldn't even stand up because his muscles weren't working. it's calmed swimmer's syndrome. now look at him. meet little mick. hear his amazing story of recovery coming up. ♪ with the spark miles card from capital one, bjorn earns unlimited rewas for his small business take theseags to room 12 please.

else was already there. they wouldn't let us use cell phones. they wouldn't let us talk to each other. they wouldn't let us -- >> gretchen: according to the law enforcement, white tailed deer, according to the law, they can't be held without proper permits. the operation raising questions about the use of government resources. the department of national resources released a statement saying in part, our staff took precautions to keep everyone safe as they executed the required search warrant. >> steve: the video of the day, a terrifying crash caught on camera when a truck slams into a tourist bus. watch. >> steve: oh, my goodness. the impact of the crash so strong, you see the driver is literally sucked out of the window by gravity as the bus starts to roll down an embankment. the bus was reversing down a highway in china after missing an exit when the semi slammed into them at a high speed.
5:36 am
the bus driver survived burks the truck driver died. 23 passengers on board the bus also injured. what a story. >> tucker: 12-year-old jeopardy contestants saying he was cheated after he loses final jeopardy for what some are saying is a pretty minor spelling mistake. >> because he misspelled it badly, he put a p in there. that's unfortunate. the judges are ruling against you. >> tucker: thomas ended up in second place. he could have won if the judge didn't rule against him. those judges have let spelling mistakes go through in the past. fans are defending him. here are some of your response. one says, i always thought jeopardy was an ask and answer program. not a spelling bee. >> steve: if he would have had worst handwriting, maybe they

5:47 am
>> we hope not, steve. it appears to be so. the administration officials and kind of off the record comments, we're learning the lessons of benghazi. lesson of benghazi are fortification and to provide military back up for your state department and c.i.a. officials. it's not to say oh, we told you that it was going to happen of the we gave you warning, and then we pulled the cover over our heads and pulled the shade down and closed our facilities. i think -- and it's difficult to second guess. we don't have the information that the white house has. but has this become the new norm? as a substitute for winning the war on terrorism, for being ahead of these folks, we now say we're going to close this installation and close this facility, this embassy, this consulate. what's next? do we close the washington monument? do we close national parks? do we close malls in america? we say we're on high alert.
5:48 am
we're defining this down in a way that says to the world, we're not a super power anymore and we're a little bit afraid. >> steve: peter, excellent point. i think a lot of people are disappointed because last year during the campaign, we heard that bin laden is dead and gm is alive. that al-qaeda has been decimated and now we know that's not right. >> it's absolutely wrong. and we did this a couple times. i think we did it together, we pointed towards the map of northern africa and the middle east where there were new al-qaeda strongholds and we know day after day, there are new al-qaeda strongholds. donald trump talked about this massive jail break where people are being released in the middle east. it's a very tough situation. we've got to stay strong as americans. we've got to continue with our resolve. i guess this is the best we can do to protect our facilities and our employees at this time. but it seems to be kind of a lack luster, strange way to do it.
